This is what our partners say!

"watchmi Theme Channels" is a content delivery platform built and designed around curated groups of related content items. We offer our partners an innovative solution for content publishing in a live TV environment with our award-winning "watchmi Channel Manager," a straightforward powerful tool to create and manage Theme Channels. Theme Channels are presented on an equal par with regular TV channels and personal user recordings in watchmi Personal Channels.

theme channels bring your content to many devices

watchmi Theme Channels are integrated on a wide array of devices and services, e.g. Connected TV, digital HD receiver, tablets and smartphones. We currently provide more than 50 Theme Channels that range from niche to mass audience content in 11 categories. 

The watchmi system supports two types of Theme Channels:


Linear Theme Channels garner a dedicated selection of content from linear TV programming (e.g. editorial recommendations for what to watch & record on linear TV, such as TV DIGITAL’s Editor’s Picks). Included items can be automatically recorded if the watchmi device supports recording functionality.


Non-linear Theme Channels are playlists of streamed video content, curated around
a specific topic (e.g. Politik) or a dedicated brand (see: Branded Channels).


With our expertise in advanced content discovery and recommendation technology, we have developed the Theme Channel platform to enrich the viewers' video experience with relevant content that can be easily accessed. Becoming part of the watchmi Theme Channel portfolio can help you in reaching more devices, platforms and viewers. Our innovative solutions for the presentation of your content create advanced opportunities for the monetization of your services.
